CHARACTERISTICS OF A SCHOOL ACCREDITED BY THE MIDDLE STATES ASSOCIATION
Awarded Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education
At an award ceremony in Washington, D.C., RYNJ was designated a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Secretary of Education. The award was based upon evidence of superior student success and a process which included a detailed description of RYNJ's educational philosophy, use of assessment tools, methods of communication, the school's skills and knowledge-based curriculum, methods of encouraging success for all students, and the school's professional development program. The award is a testament to the high level of professionalism, concern, expertise, and effort of RYNJ's teachers and administrators.
"The Blue Ribbon schools honored at this ceremony have set high standards and achieved results. The dedication of your faculty, administrators, and other leaders has helped to strengthen our schools and improve education for all children in America." - President George W. Bush
"Your schools are the very best in the country. Let me try to put your accomplishments into perspective. There are well over 100,000 public and private schools in the country. Of those schools, fewer than 300 can claim to be Blue Ribbon Schools." - U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige, November 2004
"You and your staff, students, and parents should be proud and pleased that your efforts to deliver the highest quality education are not only successful, but an example to others." - Council for American Private Education in a letter to the Yeshiva of North Jersey
